Rednoah, i tried Paddle but got the wrong order they have a bot which isn't very helpful. Later sent an email and no response. I bought a perpetual license about two years ago under this email to help with m y Plex server. I've been using it ever since until i had to reinstall windows. Can you look up my email please. I'm stuck in the water here

If you have a Microsoft Store purchase then you cannot lose your license key because you don't have a standalone license key in the first place:

Just log into the Microsoft Store and install FileBot from there. The Microsoft Store remembers all your purchases. Unless you have lost your entire Microsoft account, then only Microsoft support can help. Notably, Microsoft does not give developers access to customer information or customer support tools, so even if you were to send me your purchase details, I wouldn't be able to do anything with those.

Are you sure? This is your 3rd post, and you only need 1 post to send private messages.

1. Open Microsoft Store
2. Search "FileBot"
3. Click Install (the button will say Purchase or Install depending on whether or not the currently logged-in Microsoft account has got the FileBot purchase)


:idea: Please include screenshots if you are stuck or confused at any one particular step. It's extremely easy and straightforward as far as I can see, but perhaps you see something different?
